For the third year in a row, the city of Phoenix has been named one of the Valley’s healthiest employers by The Phoenix Business Journal. The city was ranked ninth among large employers with 1,500 or more employees.

The Business Journal recognized the honorees at a recent awards breakfast, congratulating them for adopting innovative strategies for addressing employees’ health risk factors.

The city’s employee wellness program, known internally as Fit4Phoenix, offers reduced health-insurance rates for employees who complete a biometric screening and annual health risk assessment, free flu shots, on-site mammograms and prostate screenings, health education classes, on-site health coaching, an incentive-based walking program, and employee discounts for YMCA memberships. The city’s goal is to help employees become aware of their own health and provide assistance to them so they can be healthier and more productive for the residents of Phoenix, while reducing overall costs for the city’s health-care program.
